It’s rare to see a “Dub That Time Forgot” make the cover. Shamanic Princess was released by Media Blasters under their U.S. Manga Corps label. Here’s their trailer for the series:
The odd thing about having this title on the cover is that there’s a 5 page Cardcaptor Sakura spotlight article that gives you an overview of the show. Perhaps CLAMP didn’t authorize a cover request. These things do happen.
Virgin Fleet and Photon are added to “Anime Dubs That Time Forgot”
Oh you cheeky ADV! Two different types of action. I see what you did here.
100% information and 100% accurate for Gundam Wing must have been a reference to Beckett’s Anime Unofficial Collector magazine. Articles about that magazine are forthcoming.
I don’t know who art directed this Rurouni Kenshin and Rayearth ad. It’s horrible. Black text on dark blue background followed by white text with black highlights on a red background.
By way of Archive.org’s Wayback Machine, you can see what animerica-mag.com looked like.
Vampire Hunter D Video Game? Yes! On Playstation. Here is a review:
The main feature for this issue is Cardcaptor Sakura. It provides a lot of info in just 5 pages – especially about the Clow Cards. I liked Kerberos as a mascot.
Ooooh La La! Pioneer knew who to target for this release. Unfortunately, it was released when some shows got DVD releases while others got the split Dub and Sub VHS releases.
If you were ever curious about Sailor Moon’s historical troubles of getting on TV and staying there, this article is a great read. Syndication was such an issue back then. The article also touches on the Save Our Sailors campaign.
The second season of Digimon was recommended to me by my sister to check out, which I did. I was surprised by the English adaptation. It was better than it should have been. Great ensemble of humans and digimon. The best season of the series.
Here’s the type of anime merch you could find in the local chain stores in 2000.
I love this part of Animerica. A way to discover a convention that’s close enough (1 to 6 hours) to drive to.
Voice actor interview for Kirby Morrow, known then for Trowa Barton in Gundam Wing and Van Fanel in Escaflowne. I love that Live Action Film and TV roles are listed. Kirby was on Stargate SG-1 and then later on Atlantis, and Universe.
Part 2 of the History of Mecha Anime. Covering Zeta Gundam and Macross.
Toyetic: Lending itself to be made into a toy.
I love how this PlanetAnime.com has Faye Valentine featured on the ad but nothing in the copy of the add promote Cowboy Bebop. Gundam, Beast Wars, Microman…nope. No Bebop.
I love reading the reader mail from Animerica. This is the true time machine.
I love this contest ad because they use ADV’s old logo and someone found a new font.
Oh boy! Gundam Wing fan art.
My favorite is the Krillin and Charlie Brown separated at birth one.
The Girl Power is a nod to The Spice Girls.
